Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Samuel 8 & 9)
“Saved By The Goodness of God”
Text: 2 Samuel 9:1
“Now David said, “Is there still anyone who is left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?”
“Saved By The Goodness of God,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
When other kings conquered a king, they killed the king and his heirs to the throne; but King David sought the sole surviving heir to Saul, Mephibosheth, “to show kindness to him for Jonathan’s sake.”
Mephibosheth was Saved By The Goodness of God.
King David is a type of Our Commander Jesus Christ Who is known as Son of God, Son of Man, and Son of David.
David sought after Mephibosheth the way Jesus sought after you and I.
“for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”(Luke 19:10).
King David was under covenant obligation to show kindness to Mephibosheth, but Jesus was not “obligated” to show kindness to you and I. He showed kindness to you and I out of His Great Love for you and I.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”(Rom.5:8).
You and I were Saved By The Goodness of God, “that led you and I to repentance.”
“Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?”(Rom.2:4).
God’s Love, “Agape Love,”stands independent from our actions. His Love for you and I does not depend upon our acceptance, and is not affected by our rejection; God’s Love Remains Relentless in spite of our actions.
This is where God’s Goodness flows from, His Love.
King David had God’s Love growing in him as a Shepherd’s Heart.
We too, as God’s Warriors, need to grow God’s Relentless and Unconditional Love in our Shepherd’s Heart.
Some will accept this Love and walk with you and I - and others will reject this Love and fight against us. Yet this Love Will Remain Relentless and Unconditional. This is how you and I overcome evil with good.
God’s Love working in you and I will conquer all our spiritual enemies and will turn many people from enemy to our brother and sister in Christ!
We Were Saved By The Goodness Of God to show others The Way To Be
“Saved By The Goodness Of God.” Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
